When it comes to The Real Houswives of New Jersey it seems like trouble follows them, especially when it comes to Teresa Guidice. We’ve seen her flip a table at an elegant New Jersey restaurant. This season Teresa and her brother are at odds and now a Chicago police officer alleges Guidice is in a legal brawl with him and his family. The Police officer reportedly claims cast members attacked him. News of the Jersey wives being sued is a hot Internet trend.
MSNBC reports, “Adolfo Arreola, a cop with the University of Illinois at Chicago’s police department, claims that his family was partying at the Hard Rock when the reliably mischevious Giudice sprayed his mother-in-law with champagne, then mocked her as she tried to wipe the alcohol from her eyes.
Eonline writes, “The suit, filed Monday in New York Supreme Court, states that Arreola confronted Giudice, after which Joe Giudice and Caroline Manzo-and-family came to Teresa’s side and then ended up flying off the handle.
Radaronline paints a different picture of who was attacked first in the February bar fight and in March wrote “She opened the champagne and just started spraying it everywhere and it went all over this woman near her. According to the source, the drenched woman’s husband did not take kindly to the rowdy group and physically attacked Teresa.”
Housewives regulars Caroline and Albert Manzo, their sons Christopher and Albert Jr., daughter Lauren and the brothers’ roommate, Gregory Bennett Jr., are all named as defendants, as is Bravo. The alleged fight apparently happened while the crew was taping in the Dominican Republic.
According to the dailymail, “Arreola claims he suffered a broken arm, blurred vision, cuts and bruises after some of the cast ‘savagely beat, kicked, punched, scratched, jumped’ on him. He also claims that a glass was smashed over his head during the brawl.According to the Chicago Tribune, Arreola’s cousin Jason A. Gomez also says he ‘suffered a broken leg’ after rushing to Arreola’s defense.”
Arreola provided the Chicago Tribune with a picture of his battered face claiming it was at the hands the Jersey Housewives’ cast. Arreola’s attorney Thomas Moore tells the New York Daily News, “My clients were having a nice time at the Hard Rock hotel and asked them if they’d kindly stop,” Moore said. “Not only did that fall on deaf ears, but goons and other rogues set upon them and gave them a savage beating. A Bravo spokeswoman declined comment. The suit accuses Bravo of fostering “hostility and violence in order to attract viewers.”
